Indeed, and sorry about that. The cause was a new release of subunit,
which added the new version 2 wire protocol. I had tested the whole
ecosystem for compatibility forward and backwards, and the specific
case of 'new subunit old testrepository' was known to break *unless* a
subunit-2to1 filter was put in the pipeline; when I discussed that
with the -infra folk they didn't think we'd have any issues, because
the new testrepository would be brought down with everything else due
to the PyPI mirror : sadly that global install mentioned in the review
wasn't pulling from the PyPI mirror, and so it sucked down a new
subunit on it's own.
